My boyfriend and I whipped this up last night after he expressed a yearning for fish. We bought some Tilapia and had the rest in the fridge. The result was delicious and healthy so I thought I'd share here.

Spicy Pineapple Tilapia

1 pound of Tilapia (any white fish would work just as well)
1 green bell pepper, diced
1 plum tomato, diced
Half of a red onion, sliced
4 cloves of garlic, minced
1 cup of your favorite spicy salsa (we mixed a mild red salsa with a spicy verde sauce)
1 cup of pinapple, mashed

Dry rub for fish. We actually used a Cajun dry rub from the store but you could make your own with:
1 teaspoon onion powder
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon dried thyme leaves, crushed
1 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/2 teaspoon celery salt
1/2 teaspoon Cayenne

Preheat oven to 350. In one tablespoon of olive oil, saute onion and garlic for 1-2 minutes.Toss in green peppers and cook for 1-2 minutes. Add tomatoes and cook for a minute longer. In bowl, mix together salsa and pineapple. Stir salsa into vegetable mixture and contiue to cook just until warm.

Rub a small amount of dry rub on both sides of fish. In a frying pan over high heat briefly sear each side of the tilapia. Lay fish on foil and top with salsa mixture and cover with more foil. Bake for 20 minutes.

I served this on a bed of brown rice and a side of garlicy, tomato zuchinni.

That sounds so good!
Tilapia is my favorite fish to make at home.
